Comments for On My Wishlist: September 10, 2011

On My Wishlist: September 10, 2011: 09/10/11

On My WishlistI'm reading two wishlist books right now, Attention All Shipping by Charlie Connelly. I plan to finish it this week. It's turned out to be a delightful tour of unusual places around the edges of the British Isles. I heard pieces of the book on Radio 4 when it was first published and I've been wanting to read the whole thing ever since.

I'm also reading Dandelion Fire by N. D. Wilson. It's the sequel to 100 Cupboards but I'm not sure how I feel about it. It's so very different than the last one and it feels disjointed in places. I hope all these stray plots come together soon.

I'm also reading the newly released Pirate King by Laurie R. King. It came out earlier this week. It's been on my wishlist since the title was first announced last year sometime.

My wishlist is at 924 books, up 14 books from two weeks ago.

Finished wishlist books:

  • Dreaming in Hindi: Coming Awake in Another Language by Katherine Russell Rich
  • Agatha H and the Airship City: a Girl genius novel by Phil & Kaja Foglio
  • The Case of the Bizarre Bouquets by Nancy Springer
  • The Yankee at the Seder by Elka Weber
  • If Rocks Could Sing by Leslie McGuirk

Upcoming wishlist reads include (they are in my hands waiting to be read):

  • The Replacement by Brenna Yovanoff
  • Dandelion Fire by N. D. Wilson
  • Emily the Strange: Stranger and Stranger by Rob Reger and Jessica Gruner
  • Paranormalcy by Kiersten White
  • No and Me by Delphine de Vigan
  • The Xenophobe's Guide to California by Anthony Marais
  • Schenectady by Don Rittner
  • Beachcombing by Maggie Dana
  • The Wolves of Willoughby Chase by Joan Aiken
  • The Farming of Bones by Edwidge Danticat
  • Sarah Court by Craig Davidson
  • The Talented Clementine by Sara Pennypacker

The Featured Wish for September 10, 2010:

cover artMidnight Secretary, Tome 1 by Ohmi Tomu, (recommended by @Heidenkind)

"Midnight Secretary follows the life of Kaya Satozuka, the private secretary of Director Kyouhei Touma of the Touma Company, and the secrets kept between them."

I heard about this manga series yesterday via Twitter. @Heidenkind is reading the series and mentioned she had gotten the next one in the series. It sounded good so I've added volume 1 to my wishlist.

The Xenophobe's Guide to California by Anthony Marais is something I'd like to read! And I need to check the blurb for The Framing of Bones.

I have been considering reading some manga. Hope you enjoy!



Comment #16: Saturday, September 10, 2011 at 15:19:17

Pussreboots

Manga comes in many different genres. Happy reading!



Comment #17: Saturday, September, 10, 2011 at 18:29:05

Jac @ for love and books

That looks like an interesting series (Midnight Secretary);I've not ever read any manga - but I may have to give it a try.

(I am so sorry for rarely commenting, for some reason on my personal computer I can't get comments to load on your blog! But I just loaded from a friends, and it works fine. I'll have to figure out what's wrong with my machine!)



Comment #18: Sunday, September 11, 2011 at 17:00:28

Pussreboots

Manga comes in all sorts of genres and is written for all sorts of age groups. Try a manga that matches your usual reading tastes.

Can you tell me what sorts of errors you get when you try to leave a comment?



Comment #19: Saturday, September, 10, 2011 at 22:08:03

Peggy

I just downloaded Paranormalcy as an audiobook and can't wait to read it. Thanks for stopping Pawing Through Books!

Pussreboots

You're welcome. Happy reading!



Comment #21: Sunday, September, 11, 2011 at 00:30:01 Kero

What secrets? I want to know.



Comment #22: Sunday, September 11, 2011 at 17:04:03

Pussreboots

So do I!

Shaz @ Jera's Jamboree (Sharon Goodwin)

I haven't seen manga on anyone's wishlist yet. After reading a review on Amazon it sounds like Midnight Secretary is one to keep and read to lift your spirits! Enjoy



Comment #24: Sunday, September 11, 2011 at 17:10:35

Pussreboots

I see manga once in a blue moon on someone's wishlist, but it's certainly not as popular as other types of books among the regular participants.
